Be the Better Man - The Heartbreakers
Organized by: Tassika Lloyd
EVENT DATE Jun 14, 2014
The Be the Better Man Campaign for 2014 addresses four different areas of health disparities among African American men. Deliberately set on Father's Day weekend, this football tournament is ambitiously educating and engaging our fathers, husbands, uncles, brothers, sons and nephews to sustain a healthier lifestyle. We are focusing on HEART DISEASE, PROSTATE CANCER, DIABETES and OBESITY as these illnesses negative affect Black males greater than any other racial group. Four teams will be playing on behalf of each disease and collecting donations to support organizations that are doing remarkable work in those areas.
We, the HEARTBREAKERS are raising money for the American Heart Association to help their efforts in reducing death caused by heart disease and stroke.
Our mission is to educate the African American community about health concerns disproportionately affecting Black men. We work to promote healthier lifestyle choices including routine doctor visits, better eating habits & regular exercise. What better way to teach than to show? So, help us reach our goal as we tackle men's health!
